    They still do not have the radar going when you press the red button for the different cities you have entered in the My Cities list.
    I would like to see that working .

    Hmmmm ... It looks like the door was open for TWC to negotiate their way back onto DirecTV.
    Emphasis on "was".

    Goodbye TWC.

    I think TWC's scorched earth and DIRECTV bashing slammed that door shut a while back; this just makes it a lot more certain. I suspect some business schools may want to use TWC's tactics in this dispute as a classic "what not to do in a negotiation" -- especially when you don't have as much leverage as you think.

    I am guessing that they where thinking it was a short term deal and thought why bother with some things... Now that there is a long term deal i think they will make more of a effort to get some of these things live. I can see Weather Nation giving us a "local" forecast...

    Looks like TWC may have opened the door for Weather Nation. I would still like to see accuweather channel added.

    I have no need for the Weather Channel. If I need to see the weather I watch my local 6:00 PM or 10:00 PM Newscast.
